Have you been “trying” for years to make an important change in your life like quitting smoking, losing weight, joining a gym, or eating healthy foods? Have you become frustrated by your repeated failures? Have you given up? Or are you beginning to get angry?
If you’re at the point of being angry, great! Getting really angry and “fed up” with your smokers cough, your large waist size, your flabby body, or your poor health is the quickest and surest path to change.
Forget about picking a date or waiting until the New Year or when things claim down. Forget about looking for the easiest way or a “program” to “help” you succeed. Forget about analyzing it any further. Forget about finding the courage to do it. Forget about slowly tapering off or slowly ramping up. Just begin, right now!
Start by getting really angry and “fed up” by taking an honest look at yourself, perhaps in the mirror, and your life. Allow your anger to build. Use the energy that your anger produces to your advantage. Say to yourself, “No more! I will do whatever it takes. I will face any fear. I will endure any discomfort. I will make any needed adjustments. I will have a ‘no excuses’ attitude. I will do whatever is necessary to succeed and I will do it now!”
Now continually focus your attention on the end result. Your clear lungs, increased energy, and peace of mind from being a non-smoker. Your slim, firm, and sexy body from losing weight and exercising. Your bursting energy, bright glow, and perfect health reports from eating a super healthy diet. Each time you feel like smoking, not exercising, or eating junk food, vividly imagine the end result or your ideal self.
Here are the three (3) keys.
- Get really angry and fed up.
- Focus on the end result.
- Have a no excuses attitude.
Do you want to feel and experience the sweet victory of making an important change? Get up and begin right now.
You know what you need to do. So go do it. Or keep yourself down and give yourself excuses by vividly imagining the end result if do not make the change.
It all comes down to choice and taking 100% responsibility for your life.
